“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty.
Shin Hye Sun stars as Kim So Yong, the queen with the soul of Jang Bong Hwan, a man from the future trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun takes the role of King Cheoljong, who seems like a weak and ineffective king but has a sharp and strong-willed side that he keeps hidden.
In the first teaser for the drama, Shin Hye Sun’s character reacts with shock at being in the wrong body in the wrong time period, and the second teaser shows her desperate attempts to get back to her proper time. The newest teaser reveals her interesting dynamic with King Cheoljong.
The teaser begins as Kim So Yong smiles in the direction of King Cheoljong and immediately starts to run toward him as her attendants frantically trail behind her. Text splayed across the screen reads, “A match made in heaven.”

Seeing Kim So Yong’s enthusiastic approach, King Cheoljong blushes and his smile grows wider. His voice narrates, “No matter how often I think about it, I’m always surprised.” As he opens his arms wide to greet the queen, however, she pushes him aside to pick up a bottle of wine presented by an attendant. While she cheers enthusiastically and gives him a thumbs-up, King Cheoljong’s exasperated voice says, “She can’t be of this world.”
“Mr. Queen” premieres on December 12 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
